Citrix SD-WAN Platforms


Citrix SD-WAN WANOP VPX is a virtual Citrix SD-WAN appliance that can be hosted on Citrix XenServer, VMware ESX or ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Amazon AWS-virtualization platforms. An SD-WAN WANOP VPX appliance supports most of the features of a physical SD-WAN WANOP appliances.

Because SD-WAN WANOP Edition VPX is a virtual machine, you can deploy your choice of hardware, exactly where you need it, and in combination with other virtual machines, servers, VPN units, or other appliances to create a unit that precisely suits your needs.

Citrix SD-WAN WANOP VPX software is available as:

  • A Xen virtual machine running under XenServer 5.5 and later.
  • A VMware vSphere virtual machine running under ESX/ESXi 4.1–6.0.
  • A Hyper-V virtual machine under 64-bit Windows 2008 R2 SP1 - 2012.
  • An Amazon AWS instance.
  • A Microsoft Azure Instance.

Note XenServer and VMware vSphere support VLAN trunking, but Hyper-V does not.

When a newly installed SD-WAN WANOP VPX virtual machine is up and running, you can configure it as you would configure a physical SD-WAN WANOP appliance. For more information, see Citrix SD-WAN WANOP documentation.
